That Selena Gomez is so hot right now!
The superstar singer is about to head out on the North American leg of her Revival Tour in another month, and while we're not entirely sure what to expect, we are getting some good hints…
Late Monday night, the Hands To Myself songstress posted a very telling pic to her Instagram account, invoking the Day Of The Dead in imagery that is apparently going to be involved with some of her performances!!
Ch-ch-check out her teaser (below)!!!
Selena Gomez Is Creating A Latina Version Of Empire For Freeform! Get The Deets On The Drama Series!
Selena Gomez continues to grow her empire!
Selly will executive produce the untitled drama series, which is set in a low income Latino neighborhood and told through the eyes of an 18-year-old girl destined for greatness!
Airing on Freeform (the network formerly known as ABC Family), the series stems from an idea by Kaplan, who was inspired while attending an event that featured a speech from El Lay teenager Ana Cobarrubias.
The high school senior — who now serves as a consultant on the project — got a standing ovation for her speech about making a difference in her poor East LA neighborhood, and her determination to become a strong and confident woman despite society's expectations.
So it sounds like the show will be loosely based on Ana's story — a teen drama that should definitely pair nicely with the rest of Freeform's lineup!
We have a feeling Selena won't be starring in the series, but here's to hoping she shows up as a guest star at some point.
Are YOU excited for the Latina Empire?

This was a long time coming!!
As we reported at the start of this month, the Rolling Stones announced that they'd be planning a free concert in Havana, Cuba, traveling to the nation for the first time in their long, illustrious career!
Well, last night, they did just that — and it looks like the concert went off without a hitch!
Mick Jagger apparently welcomed the fans in perfect Spanish — the ultimate showman, isn't he?! — and the group then went on for more than two hours, performing their catalog for more than 500,000 screaming Cuban fans!
Amazing! Ch-ch-check it all out (above)!!!
Who needs an interpreter when you have a bilingual daughter?!
Barack Obama is making history as the first in-office U.S. president to visit Cuba in 88 years — and he's making his trip a family affair!
Not only did Michelle Obama join the prez on his three-day trip on Sunday night, but their daughters Malia and Sasha tagged along as well!
And even though 17-year-old Malia was there on spring break, she was put to work as her dad's personal interpreter during a visit with locals!
On Monday, White House photographer Pete Souza shared a photo of POTUS charming locals with his daughter (above) on Instagram, writing:
Elena of Avalor is finally branching out on her own!
Until now, the Disney royal "inspired by diverse Latin cultures and folklore" had just been a part of Sofia the First's world.
But the company's first Latina princess is getting a book that's all her own! Yay!
Elena and the Secret of Avalor is all about introducing us to the new teen, as well as her flying friends the Jaquins, who help her rule the land!
She and the jaguar-bird hybrids will be making their debut — outside of Sofia the First — this summer during a Disney Channel movie, which will lead into the launch of Elena's solo series!
The book — dropping June 7 — is all about the 16-year-old's royal role in the fairytale kingdom of Avalor! The show will star Young & Hungry's Aimee Carrero as the titular character, and also feature voices from Jenna Ortega, Chris Parnell, and Yvette Nicole Brown.
